I sit here with a smile on my face,
I smile as I breathe in deep,
I smile as I close my eyes
and I smile all day long;
the sky is dark,
as the freezing winds
seep into my bones,
I sit here smiling silently cold and empty;
I wait here frozen in time,
with my dreams torn apart,
my heart encased in a tomb,
I smile to mask my true emotions;
smile is all that I do day in and day out,
the mask that I wear is so perfect,
one needs to come a lot closer,
to see the tears trickling down my eyes;
the days are long,
the nights longer still.
I try to find the light,
but find comfort only in the dark;
emotions swell inside,
walking on a broken path,
I look up for the rainbow
hoping that one day I will get off
this broken path and onto a new one;

A broken smile is a smile that is false to hide the pain inside!!!
This is so sad=( yet so true… to hide the pain inside=(
I really like this, it evokes sadness and longing for a new path (following the rainbow)… and hope that this new path is attainable. this will be one of my Fav’s…. thanks
